I'm loving the blacked out look as move from back to front, even the blacked out signals.

...but then I am blinded by this massive shine coming from the grill and bumper. My eyes!

J/K man. That's a decent looking Jeep you have there.

I sprayed the outside with a lens spray. I blacked out the signals, markers, and taillights.

It was only $12 for the can as opposed to paying $150 for a whole set of all new blacked out signals, markers, and taillights.

You can look at my Jeep Profile for more pics of the lights.

I bought it from Rough Country. They have a eBay Store online through eBay so I got a good deal.

The installation is fine if the bolts for everything come off ok. I'll tell you now though you'll need another person and at least 4 jackstands and 2 jacks. It'll make your life easier because I did it by myself with only 2 jackstands and 1 jack and I was dead afterwards.

Have a sawzaw or cutoff wheel ready. I had to cut my rear U-Bolts and bolts to my springs off because they were all seized. Just take your time and dont rush it and you'll be ok. When I got my kit in I opened it up and read the instructions carefully then organized everything into ziploc bags.

Hope this helps.

How is the ride quality after the install. Was going to order the 4" from a local shop and the parts guy is telling me they are crap. I dont want to waste money if the ride is horrible, but then again it a jeep and wont ride like a caddy.
